Event Name: Value Added Course on Software Tools For Nanoscale Material Characterization In Engineering Applications
Event Date: 11-01-2020 to 12-01-2020 & 18-01-2020 to 19-01-2020
Organized by: School of Chemical Engineering
About the Event: Nanomaterials now-a-days find immense application in many domains such as in conducting films, sensors, drug delivery nanofluids, lab on chip, energy storage devices, catalysis etc. due to unique optical, electrical, mechanical and chemical properties. Hence, proper characterization of these nanomaterials in terms of phase morphology, crystal structure and surface properties are very essential. This course will equip the participants with various software tools in analysing nanoscale properties of materials.
1. Understand the synthesis of nanomaterials and their application
2. Describe the basic science behind the properties of materials at the nanometerscale
3. Comprehend advanced experimental and computational techniques for characterizing nanomaterials
